Polymer Science and Technology
Guo-Ping Bei obtained his doctoral degree in Materials Science from the Institute Prime (CNRS, Université de Poitiers, ENSMA), France, in 2011 with très honorable. The main topic for his PhD thesis was to synthesize a group of nanolaminated Ti3AlxSn(1-x)C2 MAX phase solid solutions and characterize their microstructures at different scale levels as well as their mechanical properties. After finishing his PhD thesis, he joined the glass and ceramics group in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany, with a topic of “Mechanisms of crack healing in reactive MAX phase ceramic composites” which was supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). In 2015, he moved to the collaborative research group in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering in the Faculty of Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering at TU-Delft, Netherlands, where he continues to develop new MAX phase-based composites with autonomous self-healing ability as well as some ternary boron-based nanolaminates. Until now, he has concentrated most of his effects on high temperature ceramic composites including processing, microstructure and property characterizations such as mechanical properties, ultra-high temperature oxidation and crack healing behaviour, etc. as well as their applications. He has published more than 30 scientific papers in high impact journals and several book chapters. He has also worked as a referee for many journals in materials sciences and ceramic sciences.
